Hi all I just got a USB caddy and put my Seagate Barracuda 20Gb in it.Windows XP PRO recognised new hardware and I let it search for drivers.The icon in the system tray says I can remove the "USB mass storage device" but when I look in 'my computer' there is no extra drive.I went to control panel/Admin tools/Disk management but it wasn't there.How do I get windows to reconise this drive so that I can use it as a backup device?
Hi all The caddy has USB and mains,both of which are on,I also tried different USB ports and even a different disk(set to 'master'.Windows still says I can remove it(system tray icon)but I can't see it anywhere else
The drive does not show up in Disc Management,so therefore the drive letter cannot be changed. However i think Marg maybe pointing to changing any usb drive device letters and then see if this problem drive can be seen.
Hi Marg We had a very similar problem last week,changing the drive letter and path on another usb flash drive to (Z) enabled the new flash drive to be allocated the letter that was being duplicated but hidden.
I have changed my DVD drive letters from E and F to G and H.My hard drive is a SATA partitioned as C and D .I restarted windows but still no change.I was going to change the D drive letter but Windows put up a stern warning about not being able to use it until after a reboot because it is in use.Do you think it is wise to rename it anyway?
